Not sure about bolt sizing, but as far as parts comparability it usually goes like this. 03-05 and 05-07. There were 2 different batches of preds made in 05 for some reason

their not all the same size two are the same and one is longer, pull the others and look hopefully you broke one of the smaller one and you can use it as a guide. but I'm not sure of the exact length hope this helps good luck

Reason for the parts difference in 05 is early model 05's didn't have reverse and still had the old style drum shifter. later model 05's had reverse (you can tell by the black side cases) and had a different ratchet style shifting method. 03-04 are harder to shift and harder to get into neutral than other newer years and other bikes.. Once the Outlaw came out and they introduced the 525 they switched to a completely different KTM 525 Motor. Only motor difference between 03-04 and 05 up is the transmission parts everything else is the same.
